Hi Everyone...Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving

page and reading about the adventure I embarked upon earlier this

year to raise funds for Alzheimer's Scotland and Oban

and Lorn Dementia Support Group and help the fight against this


Born on 18th April 1944, I challenged myself to visit as many

Museums: Historic Environment Scotland sites: and National

Trust places in Scotland; during the year between April 2023 and

my 80TH BIRTHDAY in April 2024.

This will test my energy, planning ability and methods of travel

because my targets include places as far North, South, East,

West and in between AS I CAN MANAGE.

My reasons for doing this challenge are heartfelt; I too have

lost precious people to this disease and I really want to raise

money to help slow it down.

In April I researched the thirty-three local government counties in

Scotland for accredited Museum/s and Museums, Historic

Environment Scotland sites and National Trust places.

then using a map of Scotland I considered the overall personal

achievability … and pressed the Green Light!

To date I have now completed 80 visits including East Lothian, the

Scottish borders, Orkney Islands, Outer Hebrides, Peterhead

and many Scottish cities and towns.

So far The RAF Museum of Flight, North Berwick was seriously

impressive, Scapa Flow Museum, Orkney Islands most

emotive, The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel in

Glasgow stirred up great memories while The Museum of

Scottish Lighthouses in Fraserburgh is awesome. Fantastic visit

this week to The National Football Stadium Museum

at Hampden Park for publicity to help further fundraising for my

challenge on behalf of Alzheimer's Scotland.

I am compiling a journal of my visits, on what has

become an interesting, challenging and memorable

adventure in this my 80th year... for a worthy cause.

Regards from Karen B.
